First let me make an introduction:
I’ve lurked around the site for about a year now, just soaking up knowledge where I could. I always told myself I wouldn’t run a cycle until I was at least 200lbs, and when I was ready I would join up and run it by some of the more experienced guys here.
Goals: Mass and strength, No preference for absolute bodybuilding, but I’m no powerlifter either. Both are important to me.
Diet: five solid meals a day with 2-3 shakes. Usually totaling out between 4500-5000 calories. My diet is about 40/40/20 as far as protein, carbs, and fats go. To save you the math, I try to take in about 450g of protein and carbs, and about 100g of fat every day. This has allowed me to bulk pretty well without an unacceptable amount of fat gain. I’ll take muscles with a few cuts over shredded bones any day though! So on to the cycle:
Arimidex: .25mg/eod (ED if needed)
*Plenty of Nolvadex on hand if sides occur. (20mg/day till sides cease.)
Test-e: 50mg/e3d for first four weeks
40mg/e3d Week 5
30mg/e3d Week 6
20mg/e3d Week 7
10mg/e3d Week 8
Arimidex: .25mg/eod for first two weeks
.125mg/eod for week 3
Nolvadex: 20mg/day Weeks 5-6
10mg/day Weeks 7-8
PCT is the trickiest part for me. I’ve heard some say that the taper and traditional SERM plans shouldn’t be mixed. Others say it can speed things along. I feel like the cycle is pretty solid and pct isn’t a disaster, but I’m sure you guys can help me improve it.
